Blackberries always make me nostalgic for the summers of my childhood. I always loved picking wild blackberries and making jam with my mom and sisters. Blackberry bourbon butter is a great way to use up those summer blackberries. I loved eating this butter on fresh waffles with maple syrup. How would you eat blackberry bourbon butter?
1/2 c. butter
8 large fresh blackberries (about 2 tbsp.)
2 tsp. bourbon
2 tsp. honey
Mash blackberries in a small bowl then put them in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add the bourbon and honey. Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring. Once boiling, remove from heat. Once cooled, add 2 tbsp. of the blackberry-bourbon-honey mixture to the butter. Stir it into the butter. Pack the butter into a ramekin and let it cool for 30-60 minutes in the refrigerator.
